im sure the fans will prob kill it or something, do i have to resort to opened the lid?
No it should be fine. Shake the MacBook up and down (don't drop it). There wont be any damage to the internals by shaking as everything is Solid State.
If it doesn't come out, take off the back or just take it into an Apple Store.
Just give it some math problems to figure out. That'll keep it busy! Safari will probably be snappier now!
Seriously, I don't think you have anything to worry about. You could try using compressed air to drive it out, but it can't hurt anything.
Put in a DVD. Rip it with Handbrake to get the CPU and Fans really hot and send that thing to hell!
That.... sucks. Take it to the Apple store and see if they see guts inside your computer, lol.
I'd go with this option - get the inside fairly toasty and cook the little bugger
Wait - rMBPs don't have DVDs, D'oh
To bad the RETINA MacBook doesn't have a DVD DRIVE LOL
Ugh! Haha well just watch some Flash videos or something along those lines
Get a second hard drive and put them in RAID.
... except it doesn't have a hard drive, either.
Just put your macbook in the washer.. I'm pretty sure the spider will be drowned and this problem is solved.
Could be worse. At least it wasn't a roach that be embarrassing to explain at Apple Store.
I would try compressed air
I had this happen to me on an iMac a couple of years ago. One morning I woke it up and it was making a loud, horrible vibrating sound and I thought either the hard drive or a fan bearing.
iMac + Spider = Trip to Apple Store
I took it in to the Apple Store and they found a [dead] spider inside one of the fans. Though the spider was small, it still weighed enough to throw off the balance of the fan and caused to noise and vibrating of the computer. He got the spider out there and it worked fine after that, but they replaced all 3 fans anyway under warranty.
I don't know why your Mac swallowed a spider, did it wriggle and jiggle and tickle insider her? Get your Mac to swallow a bird, how absurd to swallow a bird! But she swallowed the bird to catch the spider, she swallowed the spider to catch the fly
oh my, perhaps she'll die!
it didnt swallow it, the spider voluntaryly walked into it.
i was using the retina mac, and saw it at the top of my keyboard area when i came back, i proceeded to smoosh it then clean it off, but the dam thign was fast and crawled into the vent behind the hinge.
called apple they said warrenty doesnt cover insects that go inside the system LOL
Play a graphic intensive video game. That'll get the system going!
I'm sure it happens all the time and users never know it
I wouldn't worry about it unless your Mac acts up somehow
I was adapting an old nursery rhyme to make a joke
No other way around it. Washing usually solves most of your problems.
Someone's parents didn't love them enough to read them nursery rhymes lol
You can always just buy a pentalobe screwdriver and open and blow it out. May take a few days to ship the special screwdrivers. But hey, screen is pretty, right? All other Mac's just open and blow it out. Apple needs to deal with things like this if they lock out their users. Apple effectively have asked for all kinds of issues barring users entry. They should feel the sting. Rock, ,paperclip, spiders. Descend on them and cripple their support staff. Maybe we get retina with upgrade ability henceforth. Here is hoping.
Why would you want to touch a spider Kill it with fire and get a new rMBP that's what I say
Maybe if you got the 2.6ghz upgrade it would have instantly killed the spider
I'm sure if you take it to the Apple store they'll fix it for you, it's just opening the damn computer.
Was it one of these:
